Praise
"Clark's tale is really more of a mood piece than a crime novel....Eddie drives the streets at night like Harry Bosch in a Michael Connelly novel...The cynical, melancholy cabbie point of view is perfect for this kind of neon-lit, noir-tinged, saxophone-scored prose poem, and Clark hits all the right notes." (starred review)
"NOBODY'S ANGEL is a gem. For what it is, it's just about perfect. I won't urge would-be novelists to forsake their writing classes and become hackers, but they would do well to read Clark's story, which doesn't contain a wasted word or a false note."
From the Publisher
Annotation Eddie Miles sees a lot of his city from behind the wheel of his cab. He sees a lot of jerks and prostitutes, preppy college kids and tired moms. He sees some bad stuff happen, but never quite like this: someone is targeting cab drivers and his good buddy, Lenny, also a cabbie, becomes the first victim. With a nostalgic prose that evokes the best atmospheric noir, Jack Clark spins a hypnotic tale and takes readers on an eerie tour of the Windy City.
